In my quest to add some really different character classes to my Mythic Legions collection, I decided that I needed an Alchemist!
Inspired by some character art that I found after doing a Google search for "D&D alchemist", I decided that I wanted my character to have a long coat with lots of vials and pouches on his body. I also decided that I wanted the alchemist to have a companion figure - some muscle that would be able to protect him since I did not envision the alchemist having much on the way of traditional weapons. I decided that a stone golem, which was presumably created through the alchemist's experiments, would make an ideal companion.
This figure is admittedly pushing the definition of what Mythic Legions figure can be since it uses very few actual Mythic parts!
The Alchemist figure started with a torso, pelvis, faulds, and loin from a Knight Builder Kit. I painted the torso and loin piece brown. The legs came from a Masters of the Universe Eldor figure. I didn't want my Alchemist to have armored legs, and I loved the boots on Eldor, but out of the box these two pieces do not work together. I had to shave down the hip pegs on the MOTU legs, but after doing so I was able to heat them up and pop them into the ML pelvis. All articulation is retained.
The coat and arms on this custom come from a Marvel Select Star Lord figure. The coat is a separate piece which slips right over the shoulder sockets, allowing the arms to plug into the torso sockets through the side holes in the coat. Once again, all articulation is retained, even with the addition of these non-Mythic Legions parts.
The head is the MOTU Man-at-Arms that came with the Battle Ram vehicle. I liked the way that unmasked head looked on this custom. I even painted it with a slightly "too pink" color, imagining that he has had a fair amount of creations explode in his face, causing his skin to be a bit sensitive and reddened!
Some of the key pieces for this custom are the various accessories that I outfitted him him. These pieces came from a variety of places. The beakers are all from a Muppets Labs playset. One of the hip bags is from a Marvel Legends Green Goblin while the other came with the Star Lord figure. The book is from a Hellboy Roger figure.
Speaking of the Hellboy Roger figure, he is what was used for the Golem character. I've always loved the sculpt on the Roger figure and he is a bit bigger than Mythic Legions, which made him perfect for my needs here. All I did was remove a wierd block piece the toy normally has on his groin and I added the loin piece from a Marvel Legends Odin build-a-figure. That skirt piece slid right on over the feet and it fits perfectly on the Golem's waist.
